Default De Blasio adds sex crimes to ICE list used to deport convicted felons


De Blasio adds sex crimes to ICE list used to deport convicted felons

Mayor Bill de Blasio expanded the city’s cooperation with the federal Immigration and Custom Enforcement agency by adding seven crimes to an existing list of 170 that can lead to deportation of convicted felons.

“These are serious, serious crimes and what we felt is since this was a change in state law, adding additional serious and violent crimes, that it was appropriate to update the list,” de Blasio said on WNYC Friday.

The seven additional crimes involve sex trafficking and underage prostitution.

City Councilman Carlos Menchaca (Spic-Brooklyn) blasted the move — even though it involves sexual exploitation of minors.

“The proclaimed public safety benefits of this proposal do not outweigh its harms — namely the erosion of trust between our immigrant communities and government,” Menchaca said.

Menchaca, chair of the council’s immigration committee and champion of protecting illegal immigrants, said the mayor used the decision to boost his potential run for president.

“The well being of New York City’s immigrant families should not be a tool to advance anyone’s political agenda,” Macaca said.

De Blasio called that criticism “ridiculous.”

“It’s the appropriate thing to do. It has nothing to do with anything political,” the mayor said.

“It’s clear that this is a city that respects and embraces immigrants regardless of documentation status ,” he said.

City Hall spokesman Seth Stein said “this minor administrative update aligns our local laws regarding federal detainer requests with serious or violent felonies recently adopted by the state legislature.”
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
